La Fonda


vitra.com

Well it seems there is quite a bit of copying of peoples work going on out there......

and as much as we all love the internet, it does distribute images of your work all over the world,

so no longer do you have to worry about it happening locally but overseas as well.

It just boils down to wanting 'original' work or 'copies' of the original, like all the designer furniture being sold at the moment thats made in China...

sure it might look great, but I'd rather sit in my authentic Eames chairs any day..............

A friend recently wanted to go and buy 6 of the 'fake' Eames chairs.... I told her to go and buy 1 real one instead.....

Talking about Eames, Vitra has resumed production of the La Fonda Armchair, which was originally designed for the La Fonda de Sol restaurant in New York in 1961.......
